Welcome to The Spa Spy, a luxury spa hotel and resort recommendation website and lifestyle hub.
The Spa Spy was created by celebrity make up artist Lisa Stokes in 2012.
For more than a decade Lisa has beautified an array of stars from Kate Moss to Juliette Lewis, Daniel Craig to Justin Timberlake.
Travelling the world working on fashion and beauty shoots, her combined knowledge and love of travel, beauty and well-being was the inspiration for The Spa Spy.
“I believe everyone, men and women from all walks of life, can benefit from a little piece of tranquility; a pamper, some relaxation and ‘me time’. The properties we review and recommend, in my opinion have a bit of everything. Luxurious accommodation, great food and wine as well as fantastic spas and treatments.”
The Spa Spy has a blog on The Huffington Post UK and Lisa writes a monthly spa column for Grazia Daily.
